Will To Fight

Another night has come and gone and here I sit all alone
wondering what the hell I did wrong
Trying to pick myself up and carry on
Though it's tough when you have been beaten up by life
Lost your will to fight

Trying not to listen to the voices in your head
Fighting against the fear and the dread
Knowing in the midst of this lonely night
You must regain your will to fight

So you allow the tears to fall from your eyes
You sink to that dark place where pain resides
As you lay in the darkness, you see
All the broken promises and shattered dreams
Smashed in pieces on the floor

You lay there looking through the open door
You can see the light but as you lay there
You realize you've lost your will to fight

So you look within trying to remember
When you were truly you
It's then you realize what you have to do

Pick yourself up off the floor
Walk through that open door
Dust yourself off and start again
Because it is only then that you
Can find the hope within
And Regain your Will to Fight

In the end its our will to fight that drives us to keep finding love and hoping for the future.

True but this was about finding your will to live when life knocks you down..

I suspect nothing would keep you down for long.

As ex-champ MMA teamster, that reminds me of one of my all-time fav lyrics, from Glenn Campbell's Coward Of The County<br />
<br />
Ya coulda heard a pin drop<br />
when Tommy stopped<br />
& locked<br />
the door<br />
<br />
Search youtube @ MMA tutorials<br />

Must share a quick story<br />
<br />
At my local gym, a few months ago, I saw a sturdy peach with a jacket, emblazoned on her broad back with, "It's only funny till someone gets hurt ...<br />
<br />
... then it's hilarious!"<br />
<br />
Her 2nd fav jacket says, "Fight like a girl?<br />
<br />
You wish!"<br />
<br />
Seeing how her muscles worked, I went over & said, "Excuse me, love: have you done MMA by any chance?"<br />
<br />
She turned round with the sweetest smile & said, "I teach it"<br />
<br />
She & her hubby are on some Mo Teague (street fighting) tutorial vids @ YT<br />
<br />
They run the Bootle Dojo very well, I hear

Thanks for reading and commenting :)

Very nice. I understand that feeling all to well.

Thank you for reading and I hope you always find your will to fight!!

You are very welcome, I said what I felt and thought, it's the truth.

I really admire you and your thinking or ideas. Words like those are as I said encouraging to me at least, especially been there and still go there sometimes, so this is needed. Thank you so much, kisses and admiration to you.

I like the positive end to this piece. Never giving up is how I live my life. I may get knocked down and battered and bruised but I always come back stronger.

Thank you and it's a good moto to have:)



I see the open door. I know what I must do. But yet, I still lie here.

Get up and walk through the door to start a new and find the real you inside...Find your will to fight!!
